Parents experiencing issues around child custody and access and child support arrangements can access the services of a neutral third-party mediator. Includes:
  • Identifying the issues underlying the dispute
  • Identifying what is in the best interest of the child(ren) involved
  • Helping the parents agree on a written mediation agreement which will be signed by both parents (it is strongly recommended that both sides have a lawyer review the agreement before signing)
